One of the lesser known films of Murnau: It’s a men’s world, but –as often– with a femme fatale in its center; a melodrama of guilt and treason unfolds itself in flashbacks. All is atmosphere: Like in a gothic tale, the stormy weather mirrors the emotional state of people; the claustrophobic rooms correspond to the state of the souls; the darkness of the night is an equivalent of the black romanticism which rules the psyche. Set in an aristocratic castle, this film is about sexual powers as forces of terror and about the terror of confession, even in its therapeutic form. It shows Murnau as a psychologist and the most classical, almost Wagnerian, Weimar director.
